If I'm late, darling, don't hesitate
Just go without me, and I'll see you there anyway
If I miss you at the station
I want you on that train
I don't want a sad sack
'Cause I'll be there come what may

Leave a message with the porter
Or leave it at the gate
Just let me know that you're aboard her
Just a word to know that you're safe

I walk from Maryland to Silver town
I hoped to catch you in the street
I must have missed you by a moment, dear
I tried the place we always meet

So if I'm late darling, don't hesitate, no, no
Go on your lonesome, and I'll catch you there anyway
I might lose sometime, babe
But if I do, I'll make amends in an hour
When I'm laying down beside you
